Changing Your Course Schedule

Drop/Withdraw From a Course

You are considered enrolled even if you stop attending classes. Non-attendance and non-payment does not withdraw you from your course(s).

Before You Withdraw

  • We recommend that you contact your instructor, academic advisor, or an academic counselor before withdrawing from a course at Hawkeye Community College. They may be able to suggest alternatives to withdrawing that could aid in your success.

  • If you are receiving financial aid, please review the financial aid withdrawal policy and the financial aid warning / suspension policy or speak with a Financial Aid Advisor to learn how this may affect your financial aid eligibility.

  • If you drop a course and then register for the same course that starts at a later date, your student account will be charged for both courses if you do not drop by the tuition refund deadline.

  • Review the Tuition Refund for Credit Classes policy.

  • Be aware of withdrawal deadlines. You are not permitted to withdraw after this time.

Official Withdrawal Process

  1. Go to My Hawkeye > WebAdvisor for Students > Registration.

  2. Print the registration results as your documentation and proof of dropping a course(s).

You will receive a grade of "W" (official withdrawal) on your academic record. Withdrawing won't affect your GPA, but a "W" will remain on your permanent record.

Your withdrawal request date and your last date of attendance will be recorded as the day you withdraw on My Hawkeye > WebAdvisor for Students > Registration.

Credits in Emergency Situations

If you are withdrawing due to an emergency situation and have completed two-thirds of the semester and the requirements of the course, you may request a grade from your instructor under the following conditions:

What Happens If I Don't Follow the Official Withdrawal Process?

  • You will not be considered officially withdrawn.

  • You forfeit your right to a refund and will receive a final grade in each course in which you enrolled.

  • You will receive a grade of "F". Your last date of attendance will be recorded by your instructor.
